Moon Dong-ju started his first bullpen pitching at Hanwha’s Arizona camp, and while coach Subero watched, he threw heavy fastballs one after another.

It’s his first day so he’s thrown with about 70% power and still got over 150km.

Moon Dong-ju, who has thrown fiery fastballs in the mid-150km range since high school, debuted last year after receiving the first overall nomination, but has not played many games due to injuries two times. I couldn’t do it, and I left a shabby record of 1 win and 3 losses.

[Moon Dong-ju/Hanwha Pitcher: I tended to push a lot with force, but I tried to mix a lot of breaking pitches and fight a lot with timing, but I think that part has improved a lot.
